My wife and friend wanted to get a last stretch out before her flight so we went over to T-Bird to stretch our legs. A light walk surrounded by creosote and a few blooming cacti - Di was thrilled to see a Christmas cactus along Desert Iguana. Busy day at the park with lots of pets (2 and 4 legged ones☺)

Short after work jog. Counter clockwise loop involving Iguana and Coach Whip. Weather was great! Almost chilly :) . Parking was limited, but I didn't see many people on the trails as I was on. No wildlife.

Desert Iguana - Sunrise - Chuckwalla Loop
Discovered a great quick nearby loop, gonna be hitting this much more often. Starts out with the Desert Iguana, cut over to Sunrise, and finished on Chuckwalla. (Going to need to upload a good route/description as it's not in here yet.) It is short, so I ran it once, and then reversed for the second loop. Gonna mix it up in the next few.

Busy with this gorgeous spring weather and would make a fun mtb, if there were 100 less people out there. ;)

I haven't hiked/ jogged in FOREVER! :( Been battling a flu for a week. Go figure, its a 100+ out and I have a cold. Anyway, made it out to Thunderbird Park to try and get my feet under me. Got out there a little after 5pm so it was a tad warm but H5 is a fairly flat trail (I think). H5 is not very well signed, so I think most of what I did out there was composed of it, but I'm sure I hit some other trails as well. Did, what amounted to a small loop on the trails on the north side of the small hill between 59th and 67th Ave.

I spent most of the dry part of the morning indoors looking up a hike to do, found an old Tbird loop that hits all the Hs, ah what the hell... soon as I set foot out of the Suby it's rainin' cat's n dogs! And I wore shorts and a tank top to work on my tan... :doh:

Three hours later, wet, cold, no birds, no people, no animals, heck I only saw 2 cyclists! Is it bed time yet? :zzz:
